Fair and lawful processing

We will not generally process data unless:

  • The individual whose details are being processed has consented to this; or
  • The processing is necessary to perform the company's legal obligations or exercise legal rights; or in order to fulfil our statutory obligations as advisers and insolvency practitioners; or
  • The processing is otherwise in the company's legitimate interests and does not unduly prejudice the individual's privacy.

When gathering personal data or establishing new data protection activities we will ensure that individuals whose data is being processed receive appropriate data protection notices to inform them how the data will be used.

Data retention period

We retain electronic data indefinitely because queries can arise many years after an insolvency case has been closed and hard copy records will be retained as required by statute.
